Martiniquian blogger on “Fleurs du Mal”

Categories: Caribbean, Western Europe, France, Martinique, Arts & Culture, History, Literature

Le blog de [moi] celebrates the 150th anniversary of Fleurs du Mal [1] (Fr) by posting “Le Vampire” and explaining her attraction to Baudelaire's poetry: “Baudelaire speaks of death and women like no other. I really understand his fascination with the two…I open [the book] rarely because it always brings out my most somber thoughts…My Pandora's box so to speak.”
